Voters to Decide on Statewide Education Tax
Colorado voters will have the final say in November on a proposed education tax of almost $1 billion. This week the Secretary of State ruled the group Colorado Commits to Kids had gathered enough signatures to put the measure on the ballot.
The group needed 86,105 valid signatures and gathered close to 166,000. After conducting a line by line analysis of the names, the state ruled that almost 90,000 were valid.
The two tier tax plan would raise revenues for all school districts while steering extra money towards “at risk” students that come from poverty or are English Language Learners.
